    Hi all,

    I spent a lot of dosh on my rig back end of 2009 and I note that I am starting to have to play games (Crisis 3/FarCry 3/ BF3 (all the 3s eh)) on lower settings.

    Can some kind soul take a look at my specs and give me some advice please. I am wanting to get that "Woosh" effect again in my gaming :)..

    My Specs -

    gig gaex58 Mother board UD5

    I7 920 4gig over clocked

    Titan power Tx 750

    Corsair XMS 3 6x 1600hz

    Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition.

    Thanks in advance peeps.

    i thought the AMD and intel 8 core processors are about the same specs but intel cost 4times as much.
